Coming to you Live from Ukraine, join us on FRIDAY, 12/17 @ 12pm EST for a visit with Romana Romanyshyn & Andriy Lesiv, the creative duo behind @art_studio_agrafka. In this special session of PICTURING: Diving Deep into Illustrated Books, the book makers will share insights into their illustration and graphic design practice, and what inspires their visual storytelling.
2018 Bologna Ragazzi Award winners for their illustrated books SOUND and SIGHT, they are also the creators of HOW WAR CHANGED RONDO, published in many languages and most recently by our co-hosts @EnchantedLion for readers of English.
A tribute to peace, resistance, and community in the face of destruction and darkness, HOW WAR CHANGED RONDO offers a powerful perspective on resilience in an imperfect world. Inspired by their personal experiences with war in their home country, Romana and Andriy will share about the process they took to weave visuals & text together to tell this story in a universal and honest way, reflecting the darkness and pain that conflict bring and the wounds that linger long after it’s over, while still offering the hope of regrowth.
We can’t wait to hear from this duo on their creative partnership, and the collaborative image-making magic they do.
